kristen_ashley

– Kristen, would you describe with your own words what the readers will find in your latest release Ride Steady?
Ride Steady is the next in my Chaos series after Own the Wind and Fire Inside. The series is based on a motorcycle club (MC) in Denver. The Chaos MC was introduced in my Dream Man series, their president, Kane “Tack” Allen having his story told in Motorcycle Man which means Chaos is a spin-off. This is mostly because I have trouble saying goodbye to my characters so I find ways to stay in touch with them.  Like spinning off books!
Ride Steady is the story of Carson “Joker” Steele and Carissa Teodoro. They went to High School together but were essentially (and regrettably) ships that passed in the night.
Joker did not grow up in a happy home (to say the least). His mother left him as an infant and his father physically and emotionally abused him. Carissa, on the other hand, had a loving family but one that was hit with a fair amount of tragedy.
The book gives us a peek at that…then takes us years in the future when Carissa’s life has taken a significant turn for the worse but Joker has found family in the Chaos MC. Carissa’s stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire and Joker stops to help. He recognizes her. There is something about him that tugs at her memory, but he’s much changed so she doesn’t recognize him.
That’s their new beginning…and away we go!
